Forum: feature_films Subject: Valid Copyright Notice?

Can someone tell me if any of the attached pictures are considered "Valid Copyright Notices"?

Also, some movies I looked at didn't have notices? are they safe to upload or is there something else I need to verify?

The movies with no notice are as follows:
Antonio (1973)
Wake Me Up When the War is Over (1969)
Rescue from Gilligan's Island (1978)
Happy Go Lovely (1951) - See below

In addition, I can't find a notice in "Happy go Lovely" but I see it was removed from the archive. Any reason that it was removed?

By the way, These are all from the Mill Creek Hollywood Comedy Legends Set. I only looked at the color movies but if there is a black and white movie on the set that you want me to upload just say so.

Wake Me Up When the War is Over (1969) is already here, and is PD since it lacks a valid notice.

Antonio (1973) is a US/Chili coproduction, and is probably eligible for GATT. I couldn't find a GATT notice for it at USCO. That's a big I dunno.

Rescue from Gilligan's Island (1978) As Moongleam noted, it's already here. Which means, I presume, someone has checked to see if a proper notice was included in copies released within 5 years of the movie's initial release. It wasn't registered within that period.

Happy Go Lovely (1951) UK productions after 1946 are covered by GATT. It gets complicated.

Rescue from Gilligan's Island is already here.

As for the first attachment, assuming this is a U.S. film, the following is invalid:

It doesn't identify the copyright holder.


Happy Go Lovely (1951) is a British film, so the rules are different.

What part of It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time's Notice makes it invalid?

It lacks a date, as far as I can tell.
